Last week’s Front Porch Friday (a little peek at my vegetable garden) was all about 3 John 2 and the importance of replenishing our souls. Being in my garden replenishes me. When my hands are in the dirt, my heart engages with God.
But yesterday, I saw something coming up in one of my flower gardens that also replenishes me.
These little beauties are the state flower of Texas. Bluebonnets have the power to transform miles and miles of our highways into a magical, jaw-dropping garden display — and photo op.
Seriously, Texas drivers pull off the roads, park on the shoulder, jump out of their cars, run right into the big middle of bluebonnet patches, plop themselves down, and take pictures of themselves. It is a once-a-year Texas tradition. We brake for bluebonnets . . . and we are replenished.
Spring is near and bluebonnet season is just around the corner here in Texas. So, I was inspired to create a little graphic for you marrying 3 John 2 with soul-replenishing bluebonnets. Hope you like it.
Now, I have a question for YOU:
As Spring begins to arrive where you live, what flower, bird, blossom, etc. replenishes you? Please post your answer in the comments. Can’t wait to hear from you!
